Bruce Willis, a TV day player?

Look for movie star Bruce Willis to do some “Moonlighting” on the upcoming USA Network drama series “Touching Evil,” an adaptation of a British series. Mr. Willis is exec producing the series with partner Arnold Rifkin. “I actually volunteered to play a villain in one of the episodes, and I plan on doing so. I’m not sure when,” Mr. Willis told TV critics in L.A. last week, sporting a bushy beard and a baseball cap. When syndicated columnist Jeannie Wolf suggested the lead role is one that Mr. Willis could’ve played himself, he replied: “About 20 years ago, Jeannie, I could’ve played this character.” The lead is actually Jeffrey Donovan, whose swagger-agreed Mr. Rifkin and Allen Hughes, the series’ director and also an exec producer-is remarkably similar to that of Mr. Willis in the days when he starred on the ABC series “Moonlighting.”
